General Guidelines on our CES Programs Operations

Enverga University emphasizes Community Extension Service (CES) as a collective responsibility for all university members. Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to participate, with departmental involvement preferred. The CES program comprises two components: the formal Community Engagement Program (CEP) and the application-focused Community Extension Service Program (CESP).

General Provision

Community Extension Service as part and parcel of the mission of the University co-equally stands as a responsibility of every sector-member of the university. In this regard, each member of the MSEUF community has a role to play in making a difference in the lives of the marginalized and less privileged members of the barangay.

Faculty, employees, and students can voluntarily join any approved CES project, but more ideally, joining their own department’s CES activity is preferred.


Structure of the CES Program

University Extension Service involves two major undertakings: (1) Community Engagement Program or CEP, and (2) Community Extension Service Program (CESP).

CEP is engaged in formal-structured short-term literacy and training activities such as technical, computer and housekeeping courses with certification of completion given to beneficiaries who passed and completed the required training hours. It also includes other training and literacy programs such as computer skill training, abbreviated courses, tutorial services, gender sensitivity training, first aid and basic survival training and the like.

It covers outreach activities to adopted barangays and communities in need of immediate services. These outreach activities include relief drive/operation, gift giving activity, blood donation, medical and dental services, and dental services, and feeding programs, seminars and orientation are a requirement in the conduct of these activities.

On the other hand, community extension is the process of application and utilization of research to an identified community or selected recipients. The research output can be utilized through the developed model or prototype of a particular technology that can be used by the beneficiaries in their livelihood activities.

The transfer of technology to the beneficiaries comes with orientation-seminars and trainings. A memorandum of agreement is required as part of the process to secure the university and the partner-community or beneficiaries in their extension undertakings.

Community Extension Service Programs are delivered to the identified adopted communities or barangays with the marginalized and less privileged people as beneficiaries.
